The Glory of the Colosseum

The Colosseum is one of Italy’s most popular destinations, attracting over 5 million visitors every year. Believed to have been constructed as a gift from the ancient emperors to the Roman people, this grand outdoor amphitheater once served as the epicenter for entertainment, hosting various public spectacles and games. A stage for gladiator fights, often including animals, the Colosseum has quite the bloody past. Step back in time, marvel at the impressive architecture, and walk the floor of the greatest arena known to mankind.

Marvel at the Palatine Hill & Roman Forum

Your Colosseum ticket also includes entry to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Head to the Roman Forum and travel back in time as you walk along the same paths as the ancient Romans did. You’ll get a chance to witness popular sites including the Temple of Antoninus Pius, Temple of Castor and Pollux, Temple of Saturn, Arch of Septimius Severus, and much more. Palatine Hill offers one of the best views of the city. Once considered the most desirable neighborhood in Rome, Palatine Hill lives on as an extensive archaeological site and was the chosen spot for Emperors to build their homes.

Note:

  • Guests have a flexible entrance to the Palatine and Forum at any time during their selected activity date. The tickets for the Palatine and Forum will remain valid for an additional 24 hours after the Colosseum entry time selected during booking.
  • Note that there are 2 entrances: One for the Colosseum, and another for the Roman Forum & Palatine Hill (combined). You may enter each entrance ONLY ONCE and not re-enter.

How To Avail Your Audio Guide

That’s right, your ticket comes along with a handy audio guide that will help navigate your way through the Roman attractions. Tune in to a digital audio guide from your smartphone - yes, it’s that easy. You’ll find an interactive map of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum. Walk around the venues and tap on the area you’re at and listen to commentary dedicated to that spot. The Last Minute Entry Tickets include an engaging physical audio-video device instead of a digital audio guide (although this ticket option fills you in on stories of the Colosseum alone).

You’ll receive information on how to download the audio guide on your smartphone in an email once you’ve booked your tickets.

Hot Tip #1: Make sure to download the audio guide beforehand when you have access to WiFi.

Hot Tip #2: For the best audio experience, make sure you bring along your earphones.
